The City receives approximately $350,000 annually from HUD to provide housing for persons with AIDS.
The City of El Paso’s HOPWA (Housing for Persons with AIDS) is currently administered by International AIDS Empowerment. The bulk of the funding is used to provide Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA). A small portion of the funding is also used to provide supportive services; at this time the project funds a job development program for persons with AIDS.
